Turkish Soccer Player Harun Tekin Batters Fan Who Ran Onto Field, Tried to Attack Him (Video)


Harun Tekin doesn’t get much playing time, but that doesn’t mean he forgot how to take care of himself on the soccer field.

Tekin, a goalkeeper at Turkish Super Lig club Bursapor, made a rare start on Sunday. He won’t soon forget his team’s 2-0 loss to Kasimpasa.

The 23-year-old had just conceded the second goal in the fourth minute of injury time when a fan ran onto the field and tried to attack him. He saw the fan approaching and took his anger out on the unfortunately stupid attacker with a barrage of kicks and punches. Security stepped in and dragged the fan to the ground almost immediately, but that didn’t stop Tekin from going back for more.

The beating only stopped because Tekin’s Bursapor teammates dragged him away. Otherwise it might still be going on at this very moment.

Watch Tekin attack in the video below.
